Fainting goats

Legend has it that coffee was discovered when Kaldi the herder found his goats dancing merrily about after consuming cherries from the coffee bush. So what the hell were these goats chewing?

It's a ridiculous video. I can't stop watching it.

Wikipedia's got the science.

Coffee slingin'

Working in the restaurant and coffee business you meet all kinds of people. Some have become good friends, most of them are pretty nice, and I've been lucky so far that the few crazy ones I've met have been of the gentle variety. That finally changed yesterday.

In His Coffee?

Here's an e-mail I received. Is it true?

An Irishwoman of advanced age visited her physician to ask His help In reviving her Husband's libido.
"What about trying Viagra?" asks the doctor.
"Not a chance", she said. "He won't even take an aspirin".
"Not a problem", replied the doctor. "Give him an Irish Viagra. Drop it into his coffee. He won't even taste it. Give it a try and call me in a week to let me know how things went".
It wasn't a week later that she called the doctor, who directly inquired as to progress.
The poor dear exclaimed, "Oh, faith, bejaysus and begorrah!
T'was horrid. Just terrible, doctor!".
"Really? What happened" asked the doctor?
"Well, I did as you advised and slipped it in his coffee and the effect was almost immediate! He jumped hisself straight up, with a twinkle in his eye, and with his pants a-bulging fiercely! With one swoop of his arm, he sent the cups and tablecloth flying, ripped me clothes to tatters and took me then and there, making wild, mad, passionate love to me on the tabletop! It was a nightmare, I tell you, an absolute nightmare!"
"Why so terrible?" asked the doctor, "Do you mean the sex your husband provided wasn't good"?
"Oh, no, no, no, doctor, the sex was fine indeed!
'Twas the best sex I've had in 25 years! But sure as I'm sittin' here, I'll never be able to show me face in Starbucks again."

An E-Mail I Received

This came via e-mail:


When he found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died, Charles decided he needed a woman to enjoy it with.

So one evening he went to a singles bar where he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her natural beauty took his breath away. "I may look like just an ordinary man," he said as he walked up to her "but in just a week or two, my father will die, and I'll inherit 20 million dollars."

The woman went home with Charles that evening, and three days later, she became his stepmother.

The moral of the story:

Women are so much smarter. When will men ever learn?
